About This Project
De Utvalgte, Salvatore, Teater Laika & Ensemble 2000 in cooperation with Norsk Form presented All your wrong fascinating poisonous delightful theories (2000) after The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.
All your wrong fascinating poisonous delightful theories was not a dramatization of the book, but rather a guided tour through desire, narcissism and abuse built on Wilde’s text. All your wrong fascinating poisonous delightful theories was the second part of De Utvalgte’s Dorian Gray-cycle.
All your wrong fascinating poisonous delightful theories premiered on 30 November 2000, on the day 100 years after Oscar Wilde’s death.
The Picture of Dorian Gray would be Oscar Wilde’s most important and literally most fateful release. Alluring at this two-mirror of a novel lay in the enormous precise description of an almost infinite range of issues that it is almost too easy to pull into our time: The senseless desire for beauty and perfection. Please flu. To drown in luxury and lead. The man who only lives through the eyes of others, etc., etc..
All your wrong fascinating poisonous delightful theories was the result of an extensive collaboration between the Norwegian theater company, De Utvalgte and the Danish contemporary music ensemble Ensemble 2000, the Swedish Teater Laika, the rockband Salvatore and Norsk Form.
As address for the occasion Villa Stenersen was chosen.
The production was performed to full houses seven times over four days.
